more informationOrganic hulled buckwheat is actually not a grain, it is a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb. So...not only is it a suitable nutritious option for wheat or gluten sensitive people, it is popular with people limiting their grain intake.
It is very high in manganese, which is vital for healthy bone structure, bone metabolism and helping in building essential enzymes for building bones. It has been linked to lowering LDL or 'bad cholesterol' and is a natural source of protein and other goodness.
It has a distinctive nutty flavour and can be cooked and served in a similar way to rice or ground into a flour. It can also be a great addition to soups, used to make tabouli or even a gluten-free porridge. Before cooking, buckwheat must be thoroughly rinsed under running water before cooking and any dirt or debris removed, then add one part buckwheat to two parts boiling water or broth. Bring to the boil then turn down the heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes.
The buckwheat plant produces a seed that is 3-D triangular in shape and has a black hull. Hulled buckwheat has had the outer black layer removed, the resulting grain being yellowish in colour. No insecticides or pesticides were used during the growing process and no preservatives or additives were used on the product before being packaged.
